The ancestors of the bearers of the Hazilrigg family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the village of Hesselgreave.

Hazilrigg Early Origins



The surname Hazilrigg was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wotteslade. In 1280, King Edward 1st of England also granted to this north country Clan the Manor of Yetham Corbet. Simon de Hasilrig was progenitor of this distinguished family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

But by the late 15th century, some of the family were found at Humberstone in Leicestershire. "The manor [of Humberstone] was granted by the Conqueror to Hugh de Grentemaisnel, and was held as part of the honour of Leicester, in 1474, by Sir William Haselrigge." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hazilrigg Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hazilrigg include Haselrigg, Haselrigge, Hasselrigg, Hasselrigge, Haslerigg, Haslerigge, Hazelrigg, Hazelrigge, Hazellrigg, Hazlerigg, Hazlerigge, Hazelrig and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hazilrigg or a variant listed above: Thomas Hazelrigg, who was born in 1615 in England, and died around 1675 in Northumberland County, Virginia (date of arrival is unknown), as well as Edward Hazelrigg, who arrived in New York State in 1822..
